This report is a part of a series of reports from the Climate Bonus project. The report illustrates the basic structure of a system that could produce strict and reliable data needed for generating product-oriented carbon footprints in Finland. It also represents a road map for developing the system for the energy and food sectors. Steering mechanisms, standards and possible data sources central to the system are also reviewed. Accuracy and a scope of the outlined system should be developed step by step, starting from the major emission sources, processes and products. Account has also been taken of linkages between the proposed system and existing environmental management systems, annual reporting practices and the European emission-trading scheme (EU-ETS).
